This fun and simple kids’ cooking activity is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or any day of the year. With 3 easy steps, even young kids can help assemble these healthy breakfast pizzas. It’s the perfect activity for the whole family to enjoy together.
St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast Fruit Pizza
- English muffins, preferably whole grain
- whole milk yogurt, preferably no sugar added
- a variety of green fruit of your choosing
Start by toasting the English muffins. Allow your kids to do as much of the prep as possible, including using a fork to break the muffin in half and placing the halves in the toaster. Allowing the kids so much independence may take a little bit longer, so this is a great activity for a non-work day.
Of course, young children will probably need help removing the pieces after they are toasted, so they don’t get burned.
After toasting, the kids will top their muffins with the yogurt pizza sauce. When choosing any dairy product for your child, please keep in mind that low-fat varieties often contain added sugar. Whole milk/yogurt is a whole food, which makes it a better choice.
Fruit flavored yogurts also tend to have a lot of added sugar. If your kids will eat it, plain yogurt is an excellent option. We love Aldi’s brand organic whole milk yogurt, because it has a nice mild flavor that isn’t overly tart. It’s also reasonably priced. The Stonyfield brand is also quite tasty.
After adding the yogurt, it’s time to add your breakfast pizza toppings. If your kids are really young you may have to cut up the fruit in advance and simply let them arrange it on top. For kids who are more capable, you can allow them to cut the fruit themselves. Happy cooking!
